The National Olympic Committee of Zambia has donated 100 masks to the Zambia Women National Team as part of their contribution to the fight against the Covid-19.
Delivering the masks to FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala, NOCZ representative Suwilanji Mpondela said the donation was a token for the Copper Queens to ensure that they keep safe ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games that have been moved to 2021.
Mpondela said the Copper Queens were assets to the nation that must be preserved to continue bringing glory to Zambia.
In receiving the donation, Kashala thanked NOCZ for its gesture and assured that the masks will be delivered to the team.
Kashala reiterated his message to the football fraternity to continue observing preventive measures prescribed by the Ministry of Health in the fight against the Covid-19.
The Copper Queens made history by qualifying to the Olympics for the first time in the country’s history.
Zambia grabbed the only automatic slit for Africa while Cameroon will compete in a play-off with Chile for the only other window for the continent.
Team Manager Besa Chibwe also attended the event.
